Reception term 3


This term we will be focusing on Winter, light and dark, Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day.


We will then use your children’s interests to help us to form our next topics for the term. Alongside our themes we will still have a range of resources available for the children such as our construction kits and art materials. 


This term we will be consolidating phonics phase 2 sounds and beginning to learn phase 3 sounds including some tricky digraphs (2 letters making 1 sound, eg. 'sh').  We will be consolidating numbers to 10 and beginning to focus on teen numbers. We will also be doing some simple practical addition and subtraction, eg. 1 more and 1 less. Please practise with your child at home.


If you would like to come into class to help listen to readers just let the teacher know. Your help is also greatly appreciated especially at Frogmore.



Please can we have a pair of named wellies and waterproofs left in school at all times for the sand pit and wet weather. Thank you.



Reception will continue to visit Frogmore on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Your child will need to wear suitable clothing – trousers, wellies and long sleeved tops, all year round please. Waterproof coats, hats and gloves are needed at this time of year. They do not need to wear school uniform. Extra warm socks if the weather is really cold. Thank you.


Cooking contribution:

Please can we ask for a contribution of £1 a term so that we can do cooking with your children. Thank you.
